There is a huge development in the section of Bluetooth headphone is noticeable in last one or two years. It is due to the recent withdrawal of 3.5mm headphone jack from many mobile phones. With the development of Bluetooth technology, wireless earbuds have evolved into a very small size and cordless form factor that we call it True Wireless Stereo (TWS). The term TWS or True Wireless Stereo refers to a technology which allows you to pair two audio devices via Bluetooth, meaning that you can transmit the L channel (left) and the channel R (right) separately. The Xiaomi Mi True Wireless Earphones 2, the TWS model also considered the same experiencing audio from your phone straight to your head without distorting a single bit of information.

  • Auto-pause feature

  • Affordable

Cons

  • Limited controls

  • No ANC

  • Battery capacity need improvements compare to other competitors

  • Lacks IPX resistance

  • It is optimized for Xiaomi Smartphones


Design:

It followed its previous version in terms of colour and design. Looks decent. The finishing of the earphones is typical for Xiaomi audio devices. But compare to other manufacturer, it get bit a less dirty. That is because of the material they used.


The slip proof design and light weight design makes you forget that you are wearing it.

Music playback automatically pauses when you take them off and resumes when you put them back on.

Sound Quality:

The 14.2mm dynamic driver produce good bass, but don't compare with Apple Airpods which cost around 5 times. The composite diaphragm dynamic driver that delivers artfully tuned sound while enhancing sound accuracy.

There are dual-microphone is equipped to provide crystal clear calls and superior audio quality. These dual-mic used for noise cancellation. A precise algorithm that works together to cancel out the ambient noise. The microphone at the bottom detects the direction of your speech and works in sync with the other mic to suppress environmental noise up to 90% to deliver a crystal clear voice call experience. The volume is fine, but not excellent for busy areas which need special care i.e. active noise cancellation. It only supports Environmental Noise Cancellation which is not excellent from my point of view.

Functionality:

This is the annoying part of it. We can pause or play the music with two taps on the right (R) earbud. If we want to go to the next song or raise / lower the volume we have to tap the left (L) earphone twice and ask the voice assistant for the command we want to perform.

There is no touch control for volume up or down. This is the only "big" flaw that I see in these headphones from the functional point. This might can be achieved with some firmware modification. But not sure when they will update this.


Mostly the earphones are optimised to used with the Xiaomi mobile phones. All other phones also supports but if you are using a Xiaomi, you will get more features from the MIUI.


One-step Pairing - Connecting your earphones was never this easy. An automatic pop-up on your phone notifies you when the earphones are out of the case. Press a single button and the earphones are instantly connected to your smartphone.

  • Up to 4 hours of listening time with a single charge

However, compare to its competitors it is a bit less but for one day use it is decent.
